So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


The mighty Mississippi

July 1 in Minneapolis, Minn. We had some time to kill between going to the Mall of America and heading to the Metrodome for a Twins game and we went down to the Mississippi River for a visit. It was one of the most beautiful sites I have ever seen.

Apparently, at the turn of the century, many flour mills used the power of the river to operate the mills. Now, these same mills are located in the vicinity, but the relics of what was once there still remain. They are really pretty.

And, we actually got a family shot while we were there, too.

It was one of those neat little out-of-the way destinations that we likely wouldn't have targeted without some downtime and being in the vicinity, but I'm glad we did it. The kids really enjoyed it, too.
